“A council could order the closure of a footpath under section 129A to G of the Highways Act 1980, as inserted by section 2 of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005, only if satisfied that the footpath had facilitated prolonged criminal or antisocial behaviour at the date of the order.”
